Kansas and Mesothelioma Statistics

While Kansas has a lower rate of mesothelioma fatalities compared to other US States, hundreds of Kansas residents develop this serious and usually deadly cancer each year. In fact, between the years of 1979 and 1999, over 360 people in Kansas died from mesothelioma cancer or asbestosis, which is a non-cancerous but serious lung disease also caused by asbestos. By county, more of these deaths were reported in Shawnee country, where Topeka is located.

The key to optimizing the results of treatment for mesothelioma and asbestosis is to seek early medical attention. Mesothelioma treatment centers are the best sources of care, as doctors and other helpful professionals are specially trained to help patients with this specific hard-to-treat form of cancer. Read on to learn where asbestos is found in Kansas.

Kansas and Asbestos exposure

While Kansas is primarily an agricultural state, several commercial companies have been identified as exposing employees and other residents to dangerous levels of asbestos. For example, the Environmental Working Group reported that Farmland Industries, Wolf Creek Nuclear Operating Company, and Frontier Oil repeatedly exposed their employees to unsafe amounts of asbestos on the job.

In 2004, asbestos abatement at the ammonia plant operated by Farmland Industries resulted in the removal of thousands of square feet of piping laden with asbestos.
